Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

DBT is often referred to as the third wave of cognitive therapy. It was developed by a psychology researcher Marshy Linehan. DBT combines awareness training, emotional self-regulation, cognitive behavior therapy, and dialectic processes. It draws attention to the possibilities of the existence of more than one truth for every situation. In simple words, each problem can have multiple solutions and shouldn’t be viewed from only one perspective.

DBT harnesses change acceptance and helps overcome mindless stubbornness when people are reluctant to question their formed views. You can think of this therapy as finding order in chaos, accepting multiple truth and perspectives as well as possibility that solution (or thought) can be true and false at the same time by, again, shifting the angle from which you look at it.
